Bristol (and beyond) jazz week – 12 Nov

Mr B has done the business for us all, as usual – a week’s musical delights detailed here on Bristol247. Small correction, Jim Blomfield’s ace trio are at the Fringe on that venue’s usual night (Weds), not Thursday. That’s great as it avoids a clash with other piano trios, of whom there do seem to be plenty in town this week.

Also worth mentioning the annual Teignmouth jazz festival if you fancy a weekend trip to the South Devon coast. Attractions there on Saturday – perhaps the stronger of the 2 days – include the excellent Tori Freestone and Alcyona Mick duo playing their Monk-influenced set, BBC Young Jazz Musician winner trumpeter Alexandra Ridout’s quartet, Nigel Price and the indefatigable Gilad Atzman. As usual, the Teignmouth affair clashes with the big festival in that London, and I’ll be there in pursuit of reviews for LondonJazzNews, but I’m repeating my annual resolution to keep a weekend free for the Devon option one of these years. They have such a good logo, for one thing.


Finally, you should come back from Devon on Sunday for the hometown launch of the fourth album by Bristol ‘s own, ever more splendid (because now a sextet) Dakhla Brass. Some reasons why here.
